Ten & Thirty-Hour Courses Set for November
Construction employers are now able to stay local and get valuable safety training for new employees and supervisors, as well as comply with a state law going into effect January 1. Western Nevada College Fallon, in partnership with the Occupational Safety and Training Institute, will conduct 10-hour and 30-hour classes in construction safety for employees within the industry.
WNC's 10-hour course for new hires will be Monday, Nov. 9, and its 30-hour training for supervisors on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, Nov. 9, 10, 12 and 13. Both classes will meet 7:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. at the Fallon campus, 160 Campus Way. Cost per student for the 10-hour session is $150, and $325 for the 30-hour class.
To reduce workplace injuries, the 2009 Nevada Legislature enacted a law requiring construction workers to complete an Occupational Safety and Health Administration 10-hour safety course and supervisors to complete a 30-hour OSHA training course no later than 15 days after being hired.
The 10-hour training is intended to provide entry-level construction workers with general awareness to recognize and prevent hazards on a construction site. It also covers a variety of construction safety and health hazards they may encounter.
The 30-hour training is intended for employees such as supervisors who have a certain degree of safety responsibility.
Instructing is Ron Schaefer, who has more than a decade of experience as a manager and in-service trainer in chemical processing, manufacturing and distribution, and four years as a master safety trainer for safety standards and programs.
